Does your house have a number on it?
Run outside and check right now!
Police, Rescue and Fire emergency workers need to be able to see
your house number to find you and if it's not there, or if it's
obstructed by shrubs or anything else you could be delaying their
response. We are very certain you don't want to do that!
Village of Crivitz actually requires all buildings to display
black-on-white block-style numbers not less than 3-1/2" high by
2-1/2" wide. This is referred to as 'uniform house numbering', which
is important to provide responders with a quick and easy view from
the street and avoids difficulty finding addresses due to
inconsistent number styles. It is also very important to display
your apartment number on your actual apartment door.
Although GPS systems are used by most emergency responders, they can
and do fail. Your physical house number will never fail.
free to purchase and install your own house numbers using the
parameters above, or contact the Village Hall at (715)854-2030 for a
free set of house numbers. Either way you choose, do it today!

"The Snowplow Blocked My
When we receive snow the Public
Works Crew's goal is to open up the Village streets and make them
passable as soon as possible.
While they are plowing, snow is being dragged across the driveways
of Village resident. This can not be helped.
The plow basically 'pushes' the snow. It has to go somewhere!
Here are a couple of tips to ease the clean-up of this snow from the
end of your driveway:
Wait until the Village does their plowing on your street to do your
'finishing' work at the end of your driveway
Shovel as much of the snow to the right side of your driveway
(looking toward the street) as you can. This will keep the snow from
being dragged back into your driveway
Please be aware that local ordinance prohibits any person from
pushing, shoving or in any way depositing snow onto public streets,
sidewalks or public property.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation!
